Mora de Rubielos is the capital of the region of Gúdar. It is situated on the left bank of the river Mora on a promontory dominated by its castle. Three flint workshops, three Bronze Age archaeological sites, six Iberian sites and two with Iberian ceramics and 'terra sigillata' have been discovered in the district.
As well as other monuments, the Mediterranean Gothic style gave Mora de Rubielos two essential buidlings. The most significant monuments in the town centre are the former collegiate church of Santa María, built in the 14th century in the Gothic style of Spain's east coast, whose choir sits at the foot of a series of grilles from the 15th century which are of great artistic value; and the imposing castle, a product of Mediterranean Gothic civil-military architecture and one of the best-preserved in the kingdom of Aragón. The town can boast as many as five hermitages, dating from the 17th to 18th centuries: La Dolorosa, Loreto or Santa Lucia –which contains canvases from the 17th century-, San Roque, San Miguel, and La Soledad. Mora de Rubielos also has examples of civil architecture, such as the City Hall and several ancestral homes. The local wickerwork enjoys certain renown.
